    This recipe is from Ray's Boathouse in Seattle, WA. I've tried several crab cake recipes and this is my favorite by far. Note: prep time includes 1 hour chilling.

      I can't believe I haven't reviewed these before! I have made them several times, and they are probably the best crab cakes ever! I really like that no mayo is used (I'm one of those mayo-phobic people). I didn't make any changes other than to add a little fresh garlic with the shallots. Try these, you won't be disappointed! Thanks Susan for sharing such a great recipe! --Marla

      This is great made with tuna fish . I cant always afford crab and I always have tuna so I thought "why not?" good choice, its a family favorite . I left out the sherry though. OK,You crab cake snobs can breath now. I'm sure its 5 stars with real crab.

      I wanted a recipe for a sightly different type of crab cake without the usual Old Bay seasoning flavor. These were the absolute best.
